Pin Pendants made with vintage tin cans
These pin-pendants are pressed and snipped from my collection of vintage tin cans and boxes, then adorned with photo images and charms. While some of the tins date to the 20's, most are from the 50's and 60's. They display the craft of typography and offset lithography and reflect the visual spirit of those times.

Tobacco Tag Jewelry
These bits of lithographed tin, dating from 1880 to 1930, went into plugs of pressed chewing tobacco to identify trade brands.
They were also used as premium coupons. there were more than 1000 different tobacco manufacturers.
The tags symbolized the sea, farming, the working man, baseball and history.
